God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates Jeff Goldblum.
Last week Londoners got a giant inflatable Donald Trump baby. This week they get a giant Jeff Goldblum-out-of-Jurassic Park statue. The latter has popped up right next to the capitals iconic Tower Bridge and is puzzling and wowing tourists and locals alike.
The hefty, bare-chested Goldblum effigy, a homage to his Jurassic Park character Dr Ian Malcolm, was erected by Skys subscription service NowTV, which is is marking 25 years since Spielbergs dino hit first graced the big screen. The service is offering up the movie as part of a subscription package.
The bizarre 330lb statue, which measures 25ft (7.6m), was apparently 250 hours in the making and will be sticking around until next week…when it relocates to MoMA (not really). The statue has become a trending topic on social media where Londoners have largely been bemused but tickled by the stunt…
Its not the giant Jeff Goldblum statue we deserve. But its the giant Jeff Goldblum statue we need right now. https://t.co/zNPc7jA5Yf

…though it isnt without sceptics:
25ft Jeff Goldblum statue pops up in London to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, which was June 11th, a month ago. Also none of the movie was filmed in London nor is Jeff Goldblum a native of the English capital. So let's just bask in its nonsensical glory. pic.twitter.com/TKQKozleMn
